Salinia is a family business that is owned and operated by Kevin and Jennifer Kelley. We were born and raised in San Jose, California at the foot of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Growing up, Kevin loved to read and focused his attention on local history. This interest led him to read Charles Sullivan’s Book “Like Modern Edens”. Hooked by the stories of early winemaking in California and more specifically in his own neighborhood, Kevin knew he had to be part of this noble yet some how humble tradition. After knowing each other since the 3rd grade and falling in love during high school, we were engaged to be married in the vineyards of Sonoma in 1996. It was then that we set the course for our future together and took the steps that would allow us to pursue our love of winemaking. Kevin received a Viticulture & Enology Degree from Davis and upon graduation, he and Jennifer moved to Nuits Saint Georges in Burgundy, France. Understanding the science, it was now time to learn the philosophy and tradition Read more »

  • Good post, Outthere. What you are saying two posts above this one reminded me ...-Salinia--Anthill Farms--Mt. Eden--Parr--Wind Gap--Arnot-Roberts--Drew--Qupe--Natural Process Alliance I had a laugh because my list above of wineries that 'got  it' was of winemakers focusing mostly on syrah (and pinot noir), and greatly overlaps with Outthere's c...

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • I have had a general dislike for syrahs for several years now... they just seem too BIG for me, and my tastes have changed toward lighter-style wines.  However I have discovered that there are some syrahs that I very much enjoy..  Recently, I was on my way up to Russian River.  I stopped in at Taft Street Winery in Sebastopol, www.taftstreetwine...

  • Salina Wine Co. Pinot Noir W. E. Bottoms 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very smooth Pinot Noir, while being fruit-forward. The price is right for such a well-made wine. I have had it with a range of foods that include a turkey dinner and cassoulet. Initially, I encountered the wine at an expensive restaurant in Healdsburg, where it accompanied four courses that it enhanced. Read More

  • Cooking for the inlaws (very critical food people).  The Lobster Fra Diavolo i'm making includes fresh serrano instead of dried crushed red pepper (adds a nice brightness) and both dry white wine (prob a sauvignon blanc) and cognac.  Normally I'd serve the same or similar wine that I'm cooking with, but for some reason, it just seems a little un...

  • Hey all. I'm a wine reviewer, and I just launched an article on some pretty great Rhone blends from Calcareous Vineyards, out of Paso Robles. Plus, I'm going to be attending a Rhone Rangers tasting in a couple of days, so I've got the region on my mind. What are some of your favorite Rhone grapes, regions (New or Old World), and producers?

  • Moving off a previous topic, I'm starting a new one that is about favourite Sonoma Chardonnays. I will kick things off with my favourites in a few different price ranges:Under $20 range- La Crema Monterey Chardonnay - newer wine for them but nice after a bit of time in the bottle.
